PRINCETON, N.J.-The Radcliffe lightweight varsity eight placed 21st among 55 boats-including 50 heavyweight entries-at the Princeton Chase, held Sunday on Lake Carnegie.

The Black and White competed in the three-mile women's varsity eight race, an openweight event that included many of the region's top heavyweight squads. Radcliffe finished third among lightweight entries in 16:06.052, one spot and less than four seconds behind Georgetown (16:03.419). Princeton was the top lightweight finisher, crossing 12th in 15:51.839.

The Yale heavyweights won the race in 14:46.323 on a beautiful day with clear, sunny skies and a slight headwind. The only other lightweight competitors were the second varsities from Georgetown and Princeton, which finished 44th and 49th, respectively. Both of those boats were more than a minute behind Radcliffe.

Two head races remain on the Black and White's fall schedule. The novices compete in the Green Monster regatta Nov. 7 at Dartmouth and will be joined by the varsity at the Foot of the Charles Nov. 14 at home.
